Canal DreamsA famous female Japanese cellist travels via boat to US as she is terrified of flying. But she and her fellow passengers firstly get marooned on their ship by war in Panama, and then the local freedom fighters take them hostage. The hostages learn of the terrorists' plan to shoot down a plane-full of congressmen and attempt to escape, but the violence escalates... fortunately the cellist is v. resourceful, good at unarmed combat - and in fact heavily armed combat too. When she's not having weird dreams that is.

OK I suppose, but I thought the dreams stuff a bit of a device that didn't add anything at all.
